Well, you see the same nickname on plf and mandriva list, yet most people see that 
they are 2 different group, and act accordingly. So it can be done, and the first 
step is to be aware of the problem, and to understand it. Maybe 
this requires to have a strong different brand, maybe others ideas an be used for that.

Obviously, it is not easy as we will have a natural tendency to do the contrary, and I 
do not blame that, nor do I want to do it in the future. I know
we all act in good faith, I just took the occasion of this thread to expose the idea
and what I humbly think we should do. People are free to listen or not.
